# What will be the Father Present Age? If

A father is 30 years older than his son. He was three times as old as his son before 5 years. What is the father’s present age?

- 50 years
- 40 years
- 45 years
- 60 years

**Answer: (1) 50 years**

**Explanation:-**

Let be the age of father is X years and the age of his son is Y years.

According to the question,

In first condition –

X = Y + 30

X – Y = 30 …………………. (1)

In second condition –

X – 5 = (Y – 5)

X – 5 = 3Y – 15

X – 3Y = – 15 + 5

X – 3Y = -10 ……………………. (2)

Solve equation (1) & (2)

Y = 20

Thus, the age of the son is 20 years.

The age of the father is 30 + 20 = 50 years

Hence, the answer is (1) 50 years.
